Together, they recorded “Authentic”, a collection of 6 original songs, some previously unheard. After around 10 months of touring around the country. Playing festivals and venues as well as a couple of bad ideas, they recruited drummer and percussionist Guy Siviour. Guy’s additional skills further bought Nick’s songs to the fore and enabled them to perform at larger events including the Wickham Festival, their biggest to date. Add to that a flurry of performances for Sofar Sounds in Southampton, Winchester, Brighton, Bournmouth and Nottingham and a handful of smaller festivals, there is now a forward momentum that is moving at a rate of knots.
